12 Days of Giving

Hi, Tracy here! Today I wanted to share a quick and easy card idea using Stampin’ Up! Stamps, Ranger Archival Ink, Chameleon Pens and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Project Recipe:

  • Stampin’ Up! – Falling Flowers Stamp Set-  Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set (Sentiment) – Cardstock- white and black
  • Ranger– Tim Holtz Distress Archival Ink- Soot Black – Stickles- Yellow
  • Chameleon Pens – YO3, YG3, RD4, BG4, PR4
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L– EZ Runner Grand, Black 3D Foam Squares

I started with a piece of white cardstock that was 3.75×5. Using my Ranger Archival ink I stamped the Stampin’ Up! flowers and leaves along the top and bottom of the cardstock. This stamp set is perfect for trying Chameleon markers for the first time. The lines of the images are a little thicker, providing a little more forgiveness when colouring. Once my images were coloured I added my sentiment.

I picked nice bright jewel tones to colour with. Chameleon Aqua Marine (BG4), Warm Sunset (YO3), Spring Meadow (YG3), Purple Grape (PR4) and Crimson Red (RD4).

For most sections of the images (for example a petal or leaf) I used about a 4 second blend. For some of the larger images I went with a 6 second blend. Once I finished adding colour I used yellow Ranger Stickles in the middle of my flowers and let dry.

I matted my stamped card front in black cardstock and then popped it off of the white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares. Voila, you have your finished bright and cheery card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Tracy
